    Same issue here... Apple please fix!!

  • rcarter92 Level 1 Level 1

    My phone was doing this as well, I figured it was because my phone had already had my calendars synced to itunes and when it updated the phone to iOS5 it saved those on top of what icloud was doing. The glitch that appears to happen is that itunes then thinks icloud is doing everything and therefore says itunes calendar sync is off. What I tried to fix this situation was sync calendars with itunes, it gives you a message trying to stop you but if you carry on it will sync then you will have two copies of iTunes calendars and one copy of iCloud. Then what you do next is tell itunes you dont want to sync with iTunes calendars and it will ask if you want to delete the calendars. It will delete all previous itunes synced calendars. Say yes and you'll only have iCloud Calendars (one set of events). Hope this helps.

    I'm not syncing with iCloud. I only sync with Google Calendars.

    I have the same problem, along with other people in this discussion thread:

    it seems it is oficially a bug

  • healeydave Level 1 Level 1

    This is a bug but unfortunately, Apple doesn't necessarily notice the useful information in these forums.


    I have the latest 5.1 iOS beta on my iPad and the bug still exisits

  • sM3e Level 1 Level 1

    I can confirm this still happens in 5.1 and I am getting all my work calendar events showing on my home device, not happy :-(

  • healeydave Level 1 Level 1

    After multiple iOS releases with this fault still existing, I think its safe to say Apple is blissfully unware about this problem

  • mollib Level 2 Level 2

    There's no way they're unaware, blissfully or otherwise. A ton of us have reported this via feedback, and I have to imagine at least some of the developers or whoever are using iPhones and have seen this for themselves. Which means it's either a bigger issue to fix than we think it should be, or for some reason, they don't think it's a high priority to address.


    I love Apple and their products, but their resolute silence is so incredibly frustrating. With the way they don't address or acknowledge anyone's concerns, ever (until they're fixed), it's a wonder any of us have stuck around. Maybe it's policy, but it's also horrendous, arrogant customer service.


    (This calendar notification thing really riles me up )

  • sM3e Level 1 Level 1

    I tired fixing my problem by adding a google calendar to ical only to find that it wont run a script for me! Im stuck now!

  • Doctor Neurology Level 1 Level 1

    Frustrating that now as we are at iOS 5.1.1 there is still no fix for the issue.  I called Apple a little while back and the representitive made a mention as to that this was a 'feature' of the notification center and not a bug.  I think 'features' are supposed to make for better usability, not an inability to use a function.  With that said.. any workarounds?  Right now, I'm doing the following:  My brother and my wife both share their calendars with me, iCloud to iCloud.  I started two iCloud accounts, one for the intended purpose of iCloud (syncing all of my calendar events, contacts, etc.)  and one simply for their calendars to be shared to.  I've included that iCloud account only on my iPad and turned off calendars in the notification center on the iPad.  So if I want to see their calendars I can now use my iPad for that purpose. 


    Please also send a bug report to Apple if this issue is bothering you --- discussion forums are just that, for discussion. 

    Thanks for any advice you can provide about the above and for any other work-arounds!

  • healeydave Level 1 Level 1

    Well I'm one of the guilty ones that I'm ashamed to say has complained about this for ages in threads but neglected to do anything about it via Apple feedback.


    I am happy to report that enough is enough and I have just done so.


    I hope any previous or new posters to this thread follow suit from now on and send in feedback.


    We can't keep relying on other people to take action!


    It took me all of 2 mins to fill in the feedback form, so there are no excuses like my previous tardiness.


    I'm even including the link again below so all you've got to do after reading this is click and feel better about yourself


  • healeydave Level 1 Level 1

    I'm not sure if this contrivene's NDA, but since its Apple's forum and in the interests of satisfying Apple customers (which can only be a good thing), I just noticed an additonal switch in iOS6 where-by you can turn on or off "Shared Calendar Alerts" :-)


    I did take a screen-shot to post, but I decided that might be going too far.

  • Doctor Neurology Level 1 Level 1

    I did see that, and though it stops the alerts, the event still shows up in Notification Center.  Hopefully they will notice that bug soon and correct it as well.

  • geoErin Level 1 Level 1

    This is still a bug with Mountain Lion and an iPhone 4s as of the end of July 2012.


    This is sort of ridiculous.

  • Pom_ Level 1 Level 1

    I like you, so optimistic.


    I also hope that it will be fixed in the next version of iOS (and/or iCloud)!
